See I struggle with these policies. Heaven forbid a teenager learn some time management skills ! That being said I do know exam week moves around a lot and they only inform students the week before so I can see why a student must be sequestered for this time. More over if you can find one student that gets up in the morning starts studying ( no texting , no Facebook ,no twitter, no TV ) studies until lunch has a quick break to eat studies till supper has another quick break to eat and go back to the books till bed then please miss practice and stay home. We should also ignore all of the data that shows increased retention and learning rates in students who participate in physical activity. Yet another blanket policy put in place without any real thought behind it.
